Not so simple as the first Cavill superman image where you obviously have his face and costume both front and center.
I'd definitely go with Batman in the batcave, full suit except for the cowl. Think the new Arkham Origins trailer. Where you see Bruce walking around the cave with his cowl off. Could be pretty effective, especially if he is sitting in front of his massive computer.

Well said. From a fanboy perspective, there are a lot of hard feelings over Daredevil and the like which makes him unpopular. From a general audience perspective, there's still a lot of residual Bennifer/Gigli/Pearl Harbour hate that hampers people's ability to take him seriously, with "OMG Argo doesn't suck!" still being a common headline when Ben Affleck being good in movies hasn't been news for the best part of a decade, really. But from Warner Bros' perspective he is pretty much the golden child, safe as houses, a proven moneymaker and critical darling whose involvement in a film, going by his recent track record, makes that film's chances of success improve. From THAT perspective, he's something of a no-brainer candidate, even if the audience/fanboy reaction was "WHA!?!?!"

For the record, I think Affleck will look great in the costume.

He's tall, handsome, and based on the info for his workout he's going to be ripped as hell. It's a snyder film so I'm sure the costume will be badass looking whether it's black rubber or something more clothlike. When that first image hits he'll look great.
....It's his acting I'm worried about.

Ben Affleck being in good films doesn't necessarily mean he is right for Batman. But there is truth that some just won't be ok with him in the role even if he is great in it.

Variety talks about MOS well underperforming expectations leading to the Batman/Affleck casting.

“Man of Steel,” starring Henry Cavill, has grossed nearly $650 million worldwide since opening in mid-June. That was a solid performance but well below some expectations — which had been raised partly due to former studio chief Jeff Robinov’s prediction that it would be the top-grossing Warner movie of all time.

Yeah, a lot like that. Though I'd have him facing the computer, with the screens glow being the only lighting. Could be very striking.

On another note, I hope Affleck doesn't grow out his hair too much. I think the shorter hair would fit. Not buzz cut, but short.

Ha, they make it sound like Ben Affleck is Warner Bros' superhero, their desperate last hope at snatching back some of the momentum from Marvel. I can just see it now....

MATT DAMON: You owe this studio nothing. You've given them everything!

BEN AFFLECK: Not everything...

(Wearily dons Batman cowl)

BEN AFFLECK: Not yet.

I'd like to see an aesthetic like that, something 'Arkhamised'.

The other Batmen have all been good for what the director was going for. This should be no different.

I mentioned this when the film was first announced. I really like the idea of the film starting with Superman doing some sort of crime fighting, and the shot pulling back through some sort of camera, through Batman's computer screen while he observes Superman. Would be a great prologue imo.

Nah he should grow it out so Superman can swing from his lengthy locks.

Fade In:

We see the events of Man of Steel. Superman fighting Kryptonians. Superman fighting Zod. We see the crater left in down town Metropolis.

Camera pulls away and we realize the events were on a monitor. A massive computer with three computer screens. One monitor replays the events from MOS, another has a display of Superman on the screen. The final screen has the Daily Planet on it.

A shadowy figure pushes away from the computer. Bats fly over head. The figure steps towards a table and we see Bruce Wayne in costume but not with the cape and cowl on.
On the table rest the cape and cowl. He puts them on and Batman stands before us.

He leaps into a supercharged Batmobile and races out of the Batcave.

Fade to black.


Thats how I would do it

Here's a really good analysis of Ben Affleck's casting from Variety, a balanced piece looking at both the pros and cons:

Look up. I really love the general idea, though I'd probably just hold the shot on Batman in his chair for a few moments and then cut back to Clark and Lois at the Planet.
